[ecrea] CfP “Communication, gender-based violence and practices of resistance: innovative narrative for social change”

Wed Jan 17 13:29:05 GMT 2018

        We are pleased to announce a call for papers on “Communication,
        gender-based violence and practices of resistance: innovative
        narrative for social change” in the journal Teknokultura. The
        journal is indexed in Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI),
        open peer-reviewed and trilingual (it accepts articles in
        English, Spanish, and Portuguese).

        Narratives on gender-based violence have been elaborated
        following a hegemonic frame of representation that situates the
        woman-victim in a paradigm that, apart from not enabling her
        agency being recognized, prevents the emergence of
        non-conforming stories. This special issue focuses, however, on
        enquiring about new locus of enunciation about gender-based
        violence and social change. This includes the search for
        representational initiatives that innovate in relation to
        practices of subjectivation and construction of the victims’
        memory. The proposal is built upon a cross-cutting approach that
        gathers intersectional perspectives. Therefore, we seek
        proposals that address gender in relation to other categories
        such as race, class, sexual orientation, age, origin, etc. These
        proposals would explore, in a theoretical or applied way, the
        concept of ethical witnessing (K. Oliver, 2001, Witnessing:
        Beyond Recognition) where the politicization of the spectatorial
        act can produce both social change and a symbolic reparation of

        We seek papers that cover the following topics:

A counter-hegemonic representational frame of gender-based violence:

        - Representations of the victim of violence as a subject-agent
        endowed with agency

        - Alternative discursive strategies of gender-based violence on
        social media

        - Cyber-activism against gender-based violence on YouTube

        - Transformative representations on gender-based violence in
        popular culture

        Discourse, resistance, and symbolic reparation:

        - Media as agents of symbolic reparation of victims of violence

        - Women survivors and practices of resistance

        - Feminist influencers: discourses of feminist activists and/or
        celebrity activism

        - Online sorority: the construction of collective support among
        women on gender-based violence

        - Re-politicization of female trauma

        - Rupture of the condition of “injurability” of women for being

        Ethical witnessing and social change:

        - Ethical implications of the spectatorial act of massive
        accounts of sexist violence

        - Capacity of response and responsibility of publics towards
        gender-based violence

        - Communicative practices that give account of the
        subject-victim as Other in their ethical dimension

        campaigns with testimonies of gender-based violence.
